Lesbian 'Comedian' Bullies First Son in 'Barron Trump, Up Past Bedtime' Show in Chicago
Apparently, comedians on the left refuse to learn that children are off limits for their political rage. Just a week ago, Katie Rich, a writer on SNL, was suspended indefinitely for tweeting insults about Donald and Melania Trump's innocent ten-year-old child. Rich "joked" that he would be America's first homeschooled shooter, among other insults. Instead of learning from the mistakes of others, a seriously unfunny "comedian" named Shannon Noll is taking it a step further with an entire show that she wrote and is starring in called "Barron Trump, Up Past Bedtime." The show opened in a small theater in Chicago last weekend.
Noll's schtick appears to be based solely on the fact that she dresses like a little boy and is a lesbian. Those are the two main jokes during her standup routine. A quick review of her YouTube page (that only has a few videos—and even fewer views) reveals vignettes called "Trash Baby," where she mocks the homeless in Chicago by wearing brown paint on her face as she begs for money and creates portraits with ketchup. It's awkward. I hesitated to even write about her because it is very probable that she saw the riot that Katie Rich caused with her poor joke about Barron Trump and decided the fastest way out of obscurity was to join in on the Barron bashing and get some spotlight time. But after watching her "impressions," it's clear that no amount of notoriety is ever going to propel her to any kind of success in comedy. (Skip to the 00:51 mark.)
Further solidifying the theory that this is a "fifteen minutes of fame" ploy, Noll even appears to have tried to plagiarize Katie Rich's tweet about Trump being in danger of a "homeschool shooting," piggybacking on the outrage. I think we can safely assume she's doing this for the attention.
Noll claims that her show isn't about Barron at all but is about life from his perspective and the characters around him and that she will play him very generically. Noll was quoted in the Chicago Tribune trying to explain herself:
I was originally going to create a fake Trump child, but I look so much like Barron. And going into this, I specifically created this character so that he bears no resemblance in personality to what we've seen of Barron Trump. I'm just playing him as a generic kid.
After watching her impression skills, I don't think she could imitate Barron if she tried.
